This project was a big hit once again! 5th graders learned about street artist Scape Martinez and used graffitti style writing to create their own artwork.
The kids loved looking and talking abotu street art. I think this artform is important for them to learn about because it is so contemporary and a huge influence on the art and design world. Street art is playing a major part in self-expression around the world and can be considered to be this generation’s form of pop-art.
They began by sketching out their ideas remembering to add “graffitti style” details like expressive lines, arrows, bubbles, and tangled letters.
They chose their favorite design and drew it on their big paper. 5th graders used sharpies to trace over their funky letters. They used liquid water colors to paint their artwork using intermediate colors.
These came out so great and make the 5th grade hallway look just like Krog Street Tunnel in Atlanta!
The NEW ASSESSMENT SYSTEM is working out really well. I respond to every student who leaves me a comment:
5th Graders are excited to begin working on their tessellation artwork next. Here is a preview of whats to come:
